Traditional Colors & Red Tabbies (boys only) Beauties Raised with Love & Care
The genetic research lead by experts from the USA, Israel, Italy, Turkey and Finland, has confirmed,
that this region is the native land of all house cats.
It also revealed unexpected relationship between the cat's breeds connected with each other. Work of scientists
is published in last number of magazine Genomics.
Results of archeologic researches, as well as data about evolution of cats suggest, that their domestication
has occurred about 5-10 thousand years ago
in the areas nowadays incorporated under the name of " the Fertile half moon » Near East. « The fertile half moon »,
bordering from the north the intra Arabian deserts
of Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iraq, is considered the native land of agriculture and the cattle breeding,
appeared in a neolith.
Among the oldest, purest breeds and most genetically varied was a Siberian cat
(parameters of heterozygosity – 0,69 and 0,73).
It is also below all the parameters numerically expressing a degree of inbreeding.
Meaning that it was basically no inbreeding in the Siberian breed.

TICA & CFA CHAMPIONSHIP ACCEPTANCE
Gentle, friendly, loyal and sociable
Siberians have big hearts to match their size. They are devoted, smart,
loving cats with a generous dose
of curiosity and playfulness.
Siberians are very intelligent, and fanciers
say they problem-solve to get what they want. They readily learn their names
and come when called – when it suits them –
and enjoy fetch and other games
in which their humans take an active role. They are generally sweet, devoted,
and amenable to handling, but their temperament depends upon early socialization.
One of the largest breeds of domestic cat, the Siberian rivals
the Maine coon and the Norwegian forest cat in size.
the three breeds are occasionally mistaken for one another
because of their similar sizes and long, all-weather coats.
The easiest way to define the differences is to think in terms of shape.
The Siberian has a rounded barrel-shaped torso and a broad,
modified wedge-shaped head with rounded contours, rounded ears and round eyes.
The Maine coon, on the other hand,
is more rectangular with his long body, tail and legs.
The Norwegian forest cat has a triangular head, slanted eyes and pointed ears,
and a medium-length body.
